Paternity

In order for a biological father to establish parental rights when a child is born out of wedlock, he must petition the court for paternity in order to establish his rights to visitation and/or custody. This cause of action may be brought by the mother or the father. Even if a father has signed an affidavit establishing he is the father and is named on the child’s birth certificate this cause of action is necessary. Petitions for Paternity may also establish child support, change the name of the child to the father’s last name, and make other findings necessary to establish a relationship with the child and the father.
